SFA Special Needs Ministry

The mission of the St. Francis of Assisi Special Needs Ministry is to create and maintain an environment where all of God's children can share their unique and wonderful gifts with Him.


At St. Francis of Assisi, Special Needs Ministry is available to meet the needs of all those who are in need of accommodation. We offer services for all ages, child through adult, and for any programming offered through the church. The ministry is here to not only support for individuals with special needs but their families as well.
The parish and Faith Formation teams work together to make sure that we provide an enriching experience for all, regardless of ability.
